[texts]Adversaries, psychology, social movements, and world politics - Turtledove, Nina Lois
Within philosophy we fmd at least two major paradigms with which it is possible to conceptualize the nature of reality: what I call the dualistic paradigm, and the integrated paradigm. Aspects of these worldviews are evidenced in the way we "deal" with adversaries, both on a psychological level and in our actions in the world. I argue that not only do these paradigms exist in philosophy and in the-actions of individuals, but they can be discerned in the events of history as well...

[texts]Examination of Acceptance as a Mediator of Anxiety Sensitivity and Perceived Disability in an Online Chronic Illness Support Group Sample - Herbst, Andrew George
Chronic illnesses account for 70% of deaths in the United States alone. The cost associated with these illnesses was $1.3 trillion in the U.S. as of 2003, with an estimated future cost of $4.2 trillion in 2023. Additionally, chronic pain affects roughly 50 million people in the U.S. and costs over $70 billion annually in healthcare costs and lost productivity. A need exists to identify more effective forms of chronic illness management; instead of focusing on the treatment of a diagnosis specifi...

[texts]Impacts of mountain pine beetle (dendroctonus ponderosae) and fire disturbances on forest ecosystem carbon dynamics and species composition - Caldwell, Megan K.
Forests play an important role in storing and sequestering carbon, where conifer forests in particular, store more than 33% within the terrestrial carbon pool. Disturbances, such as fire and insects, impact the amount of carbon that can be stored over time in conifer forests. Stand composition and structure, which plays an important role in carbon storage over time, may be altered by these large disturbances...

[texts]A design-based approach to teaching sustainability - Walter, Kim R.
We live on a finite ecological system, yet consume as though resources are unlimited. Current environmental data suggests many in the developed world are living beyond what the earth is able to sustain. The paradigms in which we operate continue to support a path of constant consumption that continues to exacerbate this problem. Technology educators can and should play a valuable role in working with students to question these paradigms through lessons that begin to engage students toward thinki...

[texts]English language literacy for the native speaker - Blake, Christine Ellen
The desire to learn a new skill or polish an old one for better employment prospects inspires many adults to enroll in community colleges. However, being away from school for a long time or having struggled in K-12 schooling, can make that transition back to the classroom difficult for adult students. As part of enrollment, they take an entrance exam, and if they do not perform well one the English Reading and Writing portions, they may be identified as "illiterate" in Academic English, and are ...

[texts]Switching strategies for ac/ac vector switching matrix converters - Bakir, Ahmed Mohamed
This thesis proposes switching strategies for AC chopper converters which can implement the multiple steps switching technique and convert the AC energy to AC, directly. The switching process in this technique depends on the current direction in the load. The main advantage of the technique is that the load will not be disconnected during switching events. Also, the semi-soft switching topology overcomes the switching problems in the AC chopper converters, without increasing the conduction losse...

[texts]Examining the differential effects of natural and synthetic aromas of lavender and peppermint on cognition, mood, and subjective workload - Cavanaugh, Jamie Lynn
There is reliable, empirical evidence that various inhaled aromas can significantly affect mood, cognition, physiology and behavior (Herz, 2009). However, the literature often does not document whether natural or synthetic fragrances were used when evaluating these factors. Also, no studies to date have compared natural and synthetic versions of the same odors. The current study attempted to determine whether the natural aromas of lavender and peppermint were superior to their synthetic counterp...

[texts]An investigation of the effect of timing of weighing on body image disturbance in a sample of female undergraduates - Brown, Dana Lynn
Body image disturbance is comprised of body dissatisfaction and body size distortion, both of which have been associated with negative health conditions and behaviors. Research has shown that heavier individuals typically express greater body dissatisfaction than thinner individuals. As obesity rates continue to rise, weight management programs that include behavioral components such as self-weighing are prevalent, though some researchers caution that weighing may increase body dissatisfaction a...

[texts]A weighty matter: effects of adiposity on adult neurocognitive health - Brannon, Sarah
There is a growing body of evidence suggesting there are modifiable vascular and metabolic risk factors for Alzheimer's disease (AD). Despite many plausible mechanisms by which obesity could contribute, its etiological contributions remains unclear. We therefore investigated 1) the evidence linking obesity to cognitive health, 2) whether obesity in early or mid-life is associated with cognitive change and the possible factors involved, and 3) whether dietary interventions that reduce weight impr...

[texts]Modeling the Flow of PCL Fluid Due to the Movement of Lung Cilia - Chamsri, Kannanut
Cilia in the human lungs are moving hairs that aid in the movement of mucus. The layer that contains the cilia is called the periciliary layer, PCL, and the liquid in that layer the PCL fluid. We consider the PCL fluid as an incompressible viscous fluid, and we consider the cilia as a periodic array of cylinders that rotate about their base with height varying as a function of the angle. We seek a three-dimensional mathematical model of the PCL fluid slowly flowing due to the movement of the cil...

[texts]Localized motion control of dynamically simulated elastic models - Greway, Anthony Robert
Physics based simulations have been flourishing for many years and provide us with an excellent method to formulate the overall motion of an elastic model. Inherently these simulations are limited by sensitive initial conditions and other material constraints that make it difficult to achieve an intended motion. Point and key-frame controls have more complete control over a deformable object and offer the ability to place a node at any position, but this can prove to be very difficult to manage ...

[texts]Tracking spatiotemporal movements of dunlin (calidris alpina articola) migration through stable isotope analysis - Doll, Andrew Charles
This thesis describes my investigations into the migratory and breeding behaviors of Dunlin (Calidris alpina arcticola) using chemical signals contained within the tissues of these long-distance migratory shorebirds. The ratios of stable isotopes (δ13C andδ15N) in the tissues of these birds serve as an intrinsic record of past dietary consumption. By studying the variation of these ratios over time and between tissues, I was able to make inferences about past behaviors.Chapter I describes how ...

[texts]The performance of a curvilinear versus a rectangular basement foundation design in expansive clay soils - Gardiner, Michael
Shallow foundation design in expansive soils has generally been approached in the industry using a typical pier/beam or spread footing/foundation wall and reinforcement design. The addition of supporting piers anchored in stable soils and excavated expansion areas under beam elements have modified a traditional foundation design for expansive soils. This traditional approach to foundation design uses designs that mitigate around the swelling effects, rather than designing to take advantage of, o...

[texts]Synchronization and Critical Behavior in Beta-Cell Networks: Towards the Engineering of the Islets of Langerhans - Hraha, Thomas
The pancreatic islets of Langerhans' are multicellular micro-organs which are integral to maintaining glucose homeostasis through secretion of insulin. Beta cells within islets synchronize their insulin release through cell-cell communication to create large bursts to meet physiological needs. However, in patients with diabetes there is a reduction in this cell-cell coupling which leads to a hindered insulin response.To better characterize the effect of cell-cell coupling in β-cell synchron...
